About Royal Princess
As Princess Cruises’ latest addition to its fleet, Royal Princess has built on the cruise line’s past successes and come up with a truly modern ship. Some of the great new features include an expanded atrium with additional entertainment and dining options; Princess Cruises’ largest-ever top deck pool, complete with water & light show; an enhanced outdoor cinema screen; and balconies with all outdoor staterooms.
Dining options are wide and varied – you’ll never find yourself short of options, even if you’re the kind of person who changes tastes from one day to the next. Princess Cruises divides its dining into four categories: Traditional, Anytime, Specialty and Casual – and all will provide you with a great experience.
There’s a huge range of activities to enjoy during your time on board. There’s The Sanctuary, a blissful adults-only area where you can go to relax and unwind. There are also a number of pools and spas for when you feel like pampering yourself or swimming a few lengths. And if you’re a fitness fanatic, the fully-featured sports and fitness area won’t leave you disappointed.
Royal Princess was officially launched in August 2013, after a short ‘preview cruise’ from Southampton to Guernsey and back in June. Her maiden voyage was from Southampton to Barcelona, setting off on 16th June.
Royal Princess will have a sister ship, to be named Regal Princess, in 2014 when building has been completed.
Royal Princess staterooms
Accommodation on Royal Princess is, as you might expect from Princess Cruises, comfortable and luxurious, no matter what level of stateroom you choose. The interior staterooms represent great value – no ocean view, but a queen-sized bed (or two singles) with a number of great amenities – ideal if you’re on a budget or don’t spend much time in your room.
Balcony rooms offer fine patio furniture to make your stay feel a little more like home. You’ll also have your own closet and desk. The mini-suites are much larger, and offer added luxuries such as a separate seating area, welcome glass of champagne, two flat-screen TVs and marble-top furniture.
And at the top of the range, the Suites with balcony offer all of the above but with even better benefits, such as access to the Concierge Lounge, laundry service and professional cleaning services all included.
